Highlights des SPLEENE CROSS
Whether flat water, wind waves or shorebreak: with the SPLEENE CROSS you will enjoy full freestyle action. Thanks to its fantastic low weight and good pop, the Cross is made for the 3rd dimension. You notice that right after your first jump!
Real surf feeling with nice comfort
The SPLEENE Waveboards have a natural liveliness and a pleasant flex. This allows real surf feeling, without compromises. This is achieved by the use of a special, hand finished PU core, just like it is used for classic surfboards. Every turn with a SPLEENE Waveboard is a real pleasure and even choppy conditions turn into bliss. So you can enjoy long surf sessions fully to the end.
Quick turning and agile
The No-Nose-Shape of the SPLEENE CROSS makes the waveboard especially agile and easy to turn. The CROSS is alive at the foot and invites to play. Effortlessly you bring it into a drift and back on track.
Also in the wave you can initiate radical manoeuvres with little effort and try out new moves. The very good damping gives you optimal smoothness at all times.
Directional beginners will find with the CROSS the ideal wave board for the entry into the world of wave kiting.
The shape of the CROSS gives you maximum control for your freestyle tricks or trips into the wave. The restoring forces of the PU core allows you to load the waveboard for jumps and the shock absorption will cushion your landing. The optimized outline and flat bottom curve makes it easy to get upwind and ride in light wind.
PU construction with stringer
The SPLEENE Waveboards are handmade in PU construction, just like a classic surfboard. During the last 50 years, different construction methods with different materials have been tested in kitesurfing, surfing and windsurfing. Our opinion and the opinion of experts is clear: The PU construction is the only method to build lively waveboards with a real surf feeling for kiting.
Even wood could never be completely replaced over the decades. There is wood in every good ski, sowboard or kiteboard! So also in the SPLEENE Waveboards: A wooden stringer runs through the middle of the boards and makes the setup perfect.
The construction requires intensive manual work and many years of experience. That is why the SPLEENE Waveboards are manufactured in small series by FATUM in Portugal. The PU core is specially optimized for board building – only a few shapers have access to this quality.
The result plays in a different league than conventional waveboards, which are manufactured in industrial construction as mass products!
By using PU foam, wooden stringers and polyester resin you get a piece of jewellery that will give you a lot of pleasure. And even in case of damage you don’t have to worry. The PU core does not suck water and you do not have to end your session right away. With polyester resin, damages can be easily repaired.
Boring white? On the contrary! The SPLEENE Waveboards come in bright colours and are a special eye-catcher. The colours are worked up directly on the core by hand and lie under the glass fibre of the finished waveboard. Also the SPLEENE decals are under the fiberglass and will stay with you forever.

Thruster FCS II setup with reinforcements
The CROSS waveboard has a thruster setup and offers you the perfect balance of agility and control. The CROSS waveboard allows you to make smooth but also radical turns and moves.
For fins, the FCS II system is used – lightning-fast, tool-free mounting and a huge choice of fins. The FCS-II fin plugs were additionally reinforced during manufacturing. For maximum durability and a robust setup – perfect for the demands of wave kitesurfing.
